vitamin C (ascorbic acid) in a large glass with 1/4 teaspoon of baking
soda and a tablespoon of honey or sugar syrup. Add a small amount of
tasty liquid. Stir. Wait until it froths up and then goes back down
again to mostly liquid. Drink it with a small glass of tasty liquid
nearby as it will still taste terrible and you will want to wash the
your body. This means taking lot of minerals. Baking soda is mostly
carbon and sodium. It is a good alkalyzer in the short term, although
you would need to add other full array minerals in the long term.

weight per day when you are coming down with a cold, for example, if
you weigh 128 pounds, you would drink 128 ounces of water or two
gallons. 160 pounds, you would drink 2 1/2 gallons. Put large soda pop

on, preferably in a room as dark as you can get it, or put face masks
or other clothing over your eyes if you cannot completely blacken the
drop of 3% hydrogen peroxide in each ear and let it drip down, holding
head sideways or lying on your side. It will fizz, indicating it is
meeting and killing bacteria. Hydrogen peroxide contains oxygen and

fresh air. If
you can stay
warm enough with heating pads, blankets etc. open a window in your
bedroom to get fresh air while sleeping. Sleep outside in a tent if
it's warm enough. Wear a hat, scarf and mittens or gloves while
sleeping if necessary. Wear extra clothes during the day or better yet,

Keep your ears
covered to keep
out germs that may cause colds. (You can do this all the time
especially in cold and flu season, and not wait until you feel a cold
coming on.) Wear a hat and scarf, or make yourself a balaclava.
Besides these things you can add to your routine when you think you might be coming down with a cold, you should also be maintaining a strong immune system by eating a healthy diet all the time. A few particular things to remember to include are bone broth, garlic, minerals, probiotics and plenty of water.
